Papa’s World – lunch on the waterfront in Southport, N.C.

Sherry and Papa having lunch on the waterfront!

We went to Southport, N.C. before going to Caswell Beach on Oak Island – to meet friends!

We wanted to explore it a little bit more the Southport area!

What we found was the waterfront with all these places to eat and sit and watch the boats go by!

There were a lot of boats going by!

We had the best view while having lunch – and this bay is very wide – a warm breeze – a drink –

living life to the plus in retirement in N.C.

Island in the distance – boat going by.

LUNCH ON THE WATERFRONT – SOUTHPORT, N.C.

Papa’s World – Lunch at INLET VIEW!

Along the water sets a bar & grill – INLET VIEW!

We took Maddy – our granddaughter out for a late lunch – early dinner – all the while watching the boats!

This is one of our favorite places to take visitors!

Inlet View is a three-story bar and grill which in summer has live music.

This sits on the backside of Eastern Ocean Isle Beach – and to the left is Holen Beach.

One of the gems we have found exploring the N.C. coastline.

Since Maddy has turned twenty-one last year – she now can order a drink with us.

Drinks with that southern comfort food – HUSH PUPPIES!

Everyone seems to serve these like in the North – you get rolls!

INLET VIEW – just near Bricklanding – Shallotte – I highly recommend you try it out!

SHERRY & MADDY – GRANDMA & GRANDDAUGHTER

Papa’s World – Picking up seashells and then lunch at Provision Company.

We decided to go to Holden Beach – walk and find seashells with Diane and Steve.

Sherry has now a collection of seashells that she has made a place in a container in the living room.

It is a stand with an old fashion metal suitcase on it and coral and driftwood under it.

On the wall is a black cursive metal sign that says “HOME”!

Sherry loves the beach – sand – water – surf and sounds.

We can get to all three beaches here in less than thirty minutes!

This one is the farthest away.

But – we chose this one to come to because we wanted to have lunch at the Provision Company!

We were here once before and the unique thing for me is that you are ON YOUR HONOR on drinks!

They do not keep track – any kind of drink!

There is a soda fountain – a bar and a beer cooler.

You just grab what you want – or get a mixed drink – then when you check out –

you pay your lunch bill and TELL them what you had to drink!

There hardly is any wait at all for a table!

The whole place is covered in license plates and dollar bills – with names on them.

You order as you come in and give them your name.

Then grab a drink and wait outside on the deck.

Steve – Sherry, and Diane waiting for our name to be called for a table with the view of ICW!

They already have your order and you grab a drink and when they call your name – the table.

Then you get your food within minutes of sitting down.

If you want another drink – just get up and in our cases – grab it out of the cooler.

When you go to leave – you stop at the cashier – tell them your name –

she asks what you had to drink – you tell her and then you pay for the drinks and meal!

Simple and on you HONOR! I LOVE IT!

Papa’s World – lunch at Bouy’s and a street music festival on Main street!

I have wanted to stop in here and have lunch ever since we got here on 10-1-20!

It is a local place right on the beach in North Myrtle Beach!

These places always catch my eye – I just get a feeling about them!

They generally have good food and live music –

and this day – the food was great – a salad with grilled fish – and the music?

Well – right across the street is a block long and a block wide vacant lot –

And it was packed with tents – you could rent – and thousand of people!

A huge stage and three bands playing for six hours!

WE WERE RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE OPENING OF NORTH MYRTLE BEACH MUSIC FESTIVAL!

Our view from our table while eating lunch!

It is the first major event sanctioned by the town government since the start of the pandemic 14 months ago!

And people were out and about in golf carts – cars – trucks and just walking!

This was roped off and a charge to enter – you could rent out a canopy – and carry in drinks and food!

We did not go inside the ropes – instead after we ate – we walked around and around the whole roped off area as did many other people – they had chairs set up outside the ropes and golf carts – the police were there and ticketing anyone not parked legal.

I would say – inside – a thousand people – or more – I guess this is the fourth one they have had like this over the years – and the radio station was there and it also was broadcasting from the beach which was just as crowded!

Sherry entering the beach on main street!

We tried to walk the beach – but it was really crowed and full of young people – all right next to each other!

A look back toward sixth street where we usually go – and the other direction had even more people!

This area is pretty much not locked down – and you could tell the tourist season has begun!

I am happy for the the store owners who have suffered so much – many shut the doors and will not return.

But – we decided this was way too crowed for us – so we returned to the music and walked toward our condo.

Pausing once again outside the ropes to listen to a band – really good singing all the classics of summer of the 60’s and 70’s!

Papa’s World – once again – Wicked Tuna – Myrtle Beach for a bite to eat!

Inside “WICKED TUNA” by the pier – Myrtle Beach , S.C.

We had been out shopping for furniture and were down in this area

by the Boardwalk on the Grand Strand.

We decided to stop back in –

and it was so windy and cold – we stopped our walk and went back to the car

and drove here instead of walking!

On a warmer day – some days are warm and coat less – others – you just do not want to walk!
Looking back toward the boardwalk of Myrtle Beach – note the flags – wind blowing!

We had purchased furniture and needed to plan our second stop!

We had been here before and enjoyed it!

When we went in – we were the only people there!

We had the whole place to ourselves!

The view we had from our table – the pier – deserted and no one on the beach!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World and our stop for a bite to eat

at the WICKED TUNA in Myrtle Beach – S.C.

Papa’s World – Morning begins our day out to Barefoot Landing!

Waking up everyday to a sunrise!

We do plan some days ahead –

mostly – we walk in the mornings

usually around 9 am.

Other days it is errands to run – houses to see

areas to explore –

and a trip down the street

to BAREFOOT LANDING in North Myrtle Beach!

Now – to get our STEPS in

we go here and walk around.

It is peaceful – not crowded

and you walk around the lake

and among the stores.

We wear our masks when it gets crowded

We also have had lunch here.

And it is maybe 5 or 6 miles away.

There is construction going on for a new brewery

and it looks to be really huge!

But in the mean time – they have set up a small park like area.

With tables – artificial lawn – stringed lights

a playground for kids

and a small tear drop trailer that is converted into a kitchen!

It is called Crooked Hammock Brewery!

I had one of them from a small TIKI LIKE HUT

next to the tear drop trailer.

It was what I wanted – not too heavy

and a hint of coconut aftertaste.

Now that may not sound good to you

but I enjoyed it and would drink it again.

I do not like IPA’s or heavy beer.

While sitting there at a long table all by ourselves

a table that could easily seat 10 or 12 people.

I noticed another couple with masks on purchase a couple beers

in cans from the brewery.

They had no where to sit

so I invited them to sit at the other end of our long table.

We carried on a conversation and found out at one time they had lived near us in Northern Va.

They had done the same as us and had purchased a condo

overlooking the marina – where we had previously

had dinner with the McBrides and Sherry’s sister

at a place called CLARK’S!

We had met another couple – exchanged address’s

and phone numbers –

we had made new friends simply by offering a seat for them.

You never know as your day starts what will transpire.

What began with a brand new sunrise

turned into a fine day of walking – meeting new friends

and discovering a new brewery.

Life is good and getting better!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – lunch – I.C.W.- Barefoot landing – views!

Our view for lunch at Barefoot Landing!

I forget the name of the place we stopped for lunch –

but Sherry knows it from recommendations from friends

and our landlord!

It is Mexican – and has the best taco’s!

We have walked by it numerous times –

and she has said we must eat there!

It sits right on the ICW – Inter coastal Waterway!

We requested outside for social distancing!

We wear our masks – we do take them off when we are not around people.

Or – when there is room to stay distances away from them.

The view of the waterway is awesome –

watching the boats – walking the boardwalk

all while sitting at our table after the walk.

Enjoying being outside –

After lunch – we walked – around the area – enjoying the feel of Christmas.

By the time you are reading this – the Holidays have passed –

for I write ahead on a schedule I have created.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Paps’ World – Local on the Water – great views & Reviews!

Sherry and her sister searched the internet

for a place to eat lunch with a view.

And – just a couple miles away

they found LOCAL ON THE WATER!

The front of the building
A view of the side of the building with another outside bar.
And one of the reasons we selected – the VIEW!
And the second reason – four star menu!

We did not know this existed so close to where we are living!

It is only 11 streets away on the inter coastal waterway.

We wanted a view and we got one!

We asked to be seated as far away from the main area and still have a view!

Sherry – watching the boat traffic on the ICW!

Now – this place was very large – multiple levels and rooms

I saw two stages for music and four different bars.

Our seats were by ourselves for the most part.

The lunch crowd had just begun.

Several unique area’s for their late night action!

I asked how busy they were and she replied

on the weekend very busy at night.

So – so during the week

but lunch was popular and the place big enough

to allow social distancing!

Many areas for entertainment
Sherry and her sister Debbie

We ended up with a very good lunch

we all had different salads

I had the AHI TUNA!

Debbie the Cobb and Sherry the Pear!

One of our views!
Another view
Another view at one of the bars

Papa’s World – DAY # 100 with friends – RESTON VA.

We have been on the move – packing –

going back and forth to the storage unit.

So we were invited by friends to meet up at the Reston Town Center.

Where we found four chairs – placed them at least six feet apart

and sat down and ate our curbside pickup!

We met up with Jason & Ginger Child –

and while it was raining – sometimes a cloud burst

we found shelter under the covered ICE SKATE RINK

Now covered in artificial grass –

with all these colorful chairs and decorations!

Our peaceful little space – under the clear roof – with a slight rain!

It was so nice to just sit and talk – eat – and watch people –

all respecting distance – and being outside – we took our masks off

to of course eat and sip our ice teas!

The topics were one and many – the laughs – well – a way to relax.

We have a lot to be thankful for – sitting with friends outside

in the fresh air – listening to the rain –

eating lunch –

it is the little things in life that are full of surprises

Thank you Ginger for the invite!

And Jason – who works from home 7 days a week –

A chance to take a break –

Someday my friend – we shall play a round of golf!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Healthy Living – Healthy Life

In my daily life – after I had my by – pass – I choose to eat healthy –

at least the best I could ! For those of you out there – you know just how hard this can be ! It is not easy – too many temptations ! I am giving this to you from one who struggles each and every day to maintain .

I am very fortunate to have a wife who helps me and guides me and keeps me on course. She is a Certified Health Coach from Dr. Sears courses. One of my main go to’s is a Health Drink – which is a WHOLE FOOD !

That my friends is very hard to find ! Making Healthy Breakfast Drinks – with a blender – DIY – is awesome ! Mine consists of ICE – crushed – a little water from the fridge – one half banana – one cup of Soy or Almond milk – and the main source of nutrition – a package of either DUTCH CHOCOLATE + or FRENCH VANILLA + !

This is a drink in powder form from Juice Plus called COMPLETE ! Not only does it fill me up for breakfast ( lunch also ) – but it provides a Proprietary Protein blend 13 grams. WHOLE FOOD with only 140 calories without the banana or Soy or Almond milk !

With 11 grams of sugar – 20 grams of carbohydrates – Dietary Fibers at 8 grams – Soluble Fiber 6 grams and Insoluble Fibers at 2 grams – I found this the best way to go for myself !

Plus – I actually feel filled up ! I sometimes add fruit – and a dab of peanut butter – not often ! I make it what I want and the flavors – DUTCH CHOCOLATE is my favorite !

I will provide a website for you to look over – feel free – and yes it is my wife’s ! You see – without her guidance – after my WIDOW MAKER HEART ATTACK in 2013 – I most likely would not be writing this now. I know it because I survived to live it !

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com is her official site . It contains a bundle of information. Not only do I follow it – I LIVE IT ! There is more – much more to write about – I posted a blog on this site a few years ago on my survival – if you have health issues – please read it – if you want more info – just leave a comment and I will get back to you, God Bless and HGD !
